so what would you have done with the kid last year?
They could have asked Portland to trade him to a team that had a spot open for a non-north american player.

It's not uncommon for teams to request junior squads to to trade certain prospects.

The team still has the choice to say no, but if Portland couldn't use him in the line up, I'm sure they could have gotten something useful for him in trade.

Not defending Nino, just saying that the Islanders did have the ability to send him back to Juniors under that scenario.
